One of the original trees found in natural woodlands of Europe is hornbeam. Varieties of this deciduous tree are becoming more and more popular in gardens, too.

Monumentalis is a unique version of hornbeam with strictly conical shape and very slow growth rate. Leaves are bright green and cover the whole of the plant. Even after they fall the tree remains very attractive with its regularly growing branches making a bonsai appearance. No pruning or trimming required. It is ideal for small gardens, or as a stand alone specimen in ambitious or Japanese-style gardens, or in groups with other compact growing plants.

Hornbeams do best in full sun and are not fussy about soil type. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
